Set in 1940 in London, England. War is breaking out as Hitler's Nazi forces begin their deadly march to seize control over Europe. But that is not the only war in 10-year-old Ada’s life. Abuse, pain, and isolation have been her constant companions. Will she be successful in joining the British children who are being evacuated to the countryside before Hitler's troops invade? This profound historical fiction story puts an unforgettable face on the Battle of Britain during World War II.
